Maker Faire Bay Area will not be held this May in 2020. Numerous factors including the potential impact of coronavirus as well as the transition last summer of Maker Media to Make: Community have influenced this decision. We have looked at dates for Maker Faire Bay Area in the Fall but we won’t decide to go ahead with an event until we can evaluate the impact and implications of this situation.
We appreciate the support and participation of so many makers and attendees for fourteen years at Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo. We continue to see the positive impact that the maker movement is having on education, community building, and business. We are thinking of new ways that we might create connections within the community and help grow and develop the community of makers around the world.
Thanks for a Spectacular Weekend!

Lacemaking, felting, laser cutting, soldering, light saber training, unicorns, breadboards, and more. Plus 40 advance-registration workshops for more in-depth, hands-on experiences.
Art + Spectacle
Giant sculptures, kinetic art, and racing mechs: meet some of the fantastic (and fantastical) works coming to Maker Faire Bay Area this year.
From projects that bring the cosmos to the classroom, to startups and venerable players pursuing innovative and beneficial commercial endeavors, the space community has new ventures happening on all sides.
Solving the world’s largest problem takes agile and open minds, prowess and fluency in technology, and interdisciplinary thinking. Climate protection is on the mind and in the hands of makers at Maker Faire Bay Area 2019.
Meet the 2019 Makers
3D printing on fabric and robotics
I will show how 3d printing of fabric can be used for Cosplay Fashion. I am also showing the new robotic tools I am creating to assist in the process and help people with tasks that require high level of dexterity.
Maria del Camino
Maria del Camino began with the vestige of a 1959 El Camino and the unfulfilled promise of a flying car. It is an electric vehicle that is mounted to a highly modified hydraulic excavator that may be operated manually or remotely via smart phone.
The Cadillac Rocket Car MK3, The Captured robot Squid and Charlie the turbine robot.
This year at maker faire 2019 Justin Gray is bringing his newest fire sculpture vehicles: The Cadillac rocket car MK3 and the captured robot squid. Come see Justin’s latest work pushing the boundary’s of reality.
Axis Mundi is a geometric shrine in the form of a 6-sided gazebo, made entirely of LED lit, laser cut panels. Emerging from the inside of the structure sits a 3ft tall kaleidoscope. Axis Mundi features code by Lilli Szafranski that is forever random.
City College of San Francisco Sculpture! Sculpting Activity, Casting Demos, and Showcase
Come see casting demos, woodblock printing demos, and student projects by the CCSF Sculpture department! We’ll be showing how to cast with dog hair, sugar, soap, glitter, and more. We’ll also provide a hands-on opportunity to sculpt in plasticine.
